76 Bewitching Book Tours review: Rae of hope by Wanita J. May

A man without tattoos is invisible to the Gods. - Iban Proverb, quoted on vanishingtattoo.com
Rae of Hope
from her Uncle's home in New York, fifteen-year-old orphan Rae Kerrigan finds herself sent across the Atlantic on a scholarship at the exclusive Guilder Boarding School in England. everyone is interested about her and she is clueless why. not everyone's intent is friendly though...
author Wanita J. May's novel is something to get excited about. this young adult urban fantasy brims with endearing characters, a solid storyline and twists and turns to keep readers guessing and at the edge of their seats. 
when i started reading, i had the impression that this book was inspired by Harry Potter especially his first year at Hogwarts. there seemed to be parallels with Rae and the boy wizard's experiences, their family history, etc. be that as it may, however, this sense of the familiar became ephemeral. suddenly, the story began to have a life of its own that was distinct and refreshing. from that point onwards, i could not let go of the book until i was done. 
i had a great time with this first book in the Chronicles of Kerrigan. now that i got to meet Rae and her peers, i am looking forward to more. 

*Rae of Hope (The Chronicles of Kerrigan #1) is available at Amazon (paperback, Kindle) and Barnes and Noble. for more information about Wanita J. May and her work, please visit  her blog at http://wanitajump.wordpress.com/, her website at http://www.wanitamay.yolasite.com/ and follow her on Facebook.
